Curriculum

PVOnline offers elementary, middle and high school students an individualized and unique learning environment with courses available for credit recovery, honors, Advanced Placement and dual enrollment. Through Advanced Placement (AP) courses, students have the ability to earn college credit by taking the AP College Board Exam for the course at the end of the school year. All courses are aligned to the Arizona State Standards.

  • Military and NCAA candidates are encouraged to verify that online credits are accepted by the intended institution before enrollment.
  • Off-campus students are required to record the time spent on coursework in an online log.
